Chapter 17. Cascading Style Sheets > Positioning with Style Sheets

17.6. Positioning with Style Sheets

In August of 1997, the W3C published its working draft of specifications for style sheet properties for positioning HTML elements on the page and in three-dimensional space. This greater control over object placement can be used for more tightly designed static page layout as well as for creating and tracking motion effects with DHTML.

This effort was initiated by Netscape and Microsoft, who began supporting some positioning properties in their Version 4.0 browsers. The positioning concepts and properties were picked up and developed further in the CSS Level 2 specification, which was released in May of 1998.
